In a world where you can buy kitchen utensils in any colour under the sun, travel mugs in a range of sizes, shapes and colours, and rugs with pictures of your pet on, it seems bizarre that you can’t get accessibility aids to match your taste - lack of imagination from designers? Or a lack of respect for the needs of the user?
